Application Release Automation Solutions

As DevOps teams navigate faster, market-drive release cycles, they must take into account several considerations:

  • In an Agile environment, the traditional separation of roles between Development and Operations can be a liability. Once an organization moves to Agile development methodologies, the gap between these teams which worked so well in the Waterfall model becomes problematic. It creates release bottlenecks and delayed change requests which disrupt Continuous Integration efforts and drag down rapid software development targets.
  • ​IT Operations teams often face deployment-related challenges. The combination of cross team collaboration, complex and distributed infrastructures, and constant change requests can result in excessive administrative overhead and governance concerns.
  • Manual processes slow rapid release cycles. Organizations that use Java and IIS/.NET to build business critical applications often encounter challenges related to error prone scripts and disconnected manual processes. DevOps teams using Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) have discovered that native manual release efforts can interrupt Agile development cycles and break popular TFS features like data collection, reporting, and project tracking.
